Bad news everyone. Bandai Namco has announced that the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered will be delayed.
The PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions remain on track for release next month.
In a tweet from the official Dark Souls account, the Switch delay was confirmed.
Dark Souls Remastered Delayed Switch
The reason for the delay of the Switch version isn’t entirely clear.
The tweet claims that “the nature of causality” is to blame. And it’s not just Dark Souls Remastered that will be delayed.
The Solaire of Astora amiibo will be delayed alongside the game.
Due to the nature of causality, we must announce that the Nintendo Switch version of #DarkSoulsRemastered will be pushed back to summer of 2018, and with it, the release of the Solaire of Astora amiibo.
PC/PS4/X1 versions will maintain their May 25th release date.

The Dark Souls Twitter account goes on to say that “Rest assured, this time will ultimately be used to improve your journey to Lordran.”
The release date for Dark Souls Remastered on Switch is now simply Summer 2018. Dark Souls Remastered will be the first title in the franchise to be released on a Nintendo platform.
It was announced during a Nintendo Direct as was the amiibo and Network Test. With Dark Souls Remastered delayed for Switch, it’s unclear if the Network Stress Test will go ahead.
